Super betting site OffshoreInsiders.com breaks down the best teams to bet on and against this season in college basketball.
College basketball margin of cover standings for 2021-22.
Maryland Eastern Shore
Note that Auburn is tied for the best spread mark in the nation at 14-4 but by only 4.4 points per game. They demonstrate why so many sharps balance out record with margin of cover to measure if a team is truly over or underperforming.
Now the best teams to fade in terms of margin of cover at a vetted sportsbook like Bovada
Texas San Antonio
Margin of cover is a long-time tool of original cappers used to measure the reliability of the often deceptive ATS and OU records. It is much like margin of victory, except it measures margin relative to the point spread or OU. With over-under, “overs” are listed first. Some Johnny-Come-Lately handicappers call this the sweat barometer.
With Ben Roethlisberger expected to retire, it’s anybody’s guess who will be the next quarterback of the fabled Pittsburgh Steelers franchise.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said all options were on the table in regards to his starting QB in 2022. The obvious choice is Steelers longtime backup and occasional starter, Mason Rudolph, and the odds at SportsBetting have him tabbed as the favorite.
Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers are on the list of 18 players. Cam Newton has the worst odds on the board.
Speaking of Tomlin, he was tabbed with 7-1, or +700, odds to be the next head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders when odds were initially released Monday. But bets have flooded in on Tomlin and now he has the second-lowest odds at 3-1.
When it comes to ATS margin, the Cleveland Cavaliers are the most dominant. The Ohio squad is 27-13-2 to the number, covering by an average of 7 points per game. Though Memphis has a similar record at 28-15, they are a distant second based on spread margin at 3.6 at sportsbooks like Bovada There is no clear-cut best team to fade, though Portland at -3.8 points per game and 15-25 ATS hold said distinction.
Best ATS teams ranked by “sweat barometer” or margin of cover.
It becomes a big drop-off at the point, with Spurs next at +2 points per game.

As we head into the final week of the NFL regular season, there are so many storylines to cover outside of the wild scenarios for the final playoff spots.
SportsBetting has unleashed a host of prop bets for topics like Antonio Brown, records on the line, head coach firings and of course, the dreaded ManningCast Curse.
